Lenovo L512 fingerprint reader going away

Hello all,  I recently bought a new L512 off of Woot.com (they had a phenomenal deal).  By and large I love it.  However, I've been having consistent issue with the fingerprint reader.  It works great for a short period of time after a reboot (hours, not days), and then simply isn't picked up by Windows.  I can't use it to register a fingerprint, log in to anything, etc.  In both Windows' and Lenovo's software applications, they report that there is no fingerprint reader connected/installed, or that it is in use by another program.

 

Thanks for the help for the Lenovo newbie!
